My roommate’s gun got nine bullets in it
Nine bullets in my roommate’s gun
My roommate’s gun got nine bullets in it
Gonna find a use for every last one

One for the love who chose to betray me, a real fine love who wouldn’t be true
One for the man that she betrayed with, a nice enough fella, she’ll betray him too
A nice enough fella, she’ll betray him too

One for my boss man, riding my butt again, sorry sir, but you’d better clock out
One for the lady down at the laundrymat, who goes threw my dryer pulling one sock out
She goes threw my dryer pulling one sock out

One just to put me out of my misery
I better aim that sucker true
I’ll leave a note that says I’m sorry but I went off the deep end when I fell for you
I went off the deep end when I fell for you

One each for my immediate family, they’ll be so disappointed to see what I done
One left over, I’ll save it for my roommate
After all it’s my roommate’s gun
After all it’s my roommate’s gun

My roommate’s gun got nine bullets in it Nine bullets in my roommate’s gun
Roommate’s gun got nine bullets in it
Gonna find a use for every last one Gonna find a use for every last one
Gonna find a use for every last one
